Saturday Gratitude!

hi everyone!

i am so grateful for saturdays,
so am joining 'maxabella' & friends
at her gratitude link up.

it's a glorious sunny day here today
so i took the time to just drive ...
taking the long way around
on the way
to do my shopping for the weekend!

these are a few things that caught my eye...

don't some things just catch your eye..
i just loved this sweet yellow '50's house
with its white picket fence
and glorious neat green hedge.

then there was this...

a poinsettia bush
covered with bright bracts of deep pink...

then i drove past this...

fm 91.5 broadcasts
music all through the night
so that when mr w is away
i don't have to listen to creaks
and noises under the house...
wondering if they're rats..yuk
or worse still people
creeping there!

i went and picked up a nice hot chook for lunch
then called in to hungry jacks
for a saturday treat...

a choc top for a dollar..

saturdays are different.

i like to keep them free

yippee for a spontaneous saturday!
wishing you the same.

  1. Love the 50s style house and that choc top looks great. Good idea to have something to listen to in the middle of the night. If I wake up I listen to some of my podcasts that I download from Radio National onto my ipod. Take care. Charmaine

  2. Thanks for the Tour have Always loved your Area...Your Plan for Saturdays sound Lovely something for you to look forward to each week...

  3. Yummo! I need one of those ice creams right about now.

  4. Hi Carol, got your message via Cate. Can you not sign into blogger at all? Or just my WP site? I had to clear all of the cookie in my internet browser and then unclick the 'keep me signed in' bit when you sign into blogger before I could comment on some blogs. Might help? Anyhoo - I hope you are rested. I love the photos. Looks like a beautiful day in QLD today.

  5. Hi seems to be only you and one other who is Indonesia that tells me that I am not 'Naturally Carol' and tells me to sign into blogger under a different name..trouble is I haven't got another name!! I will just have to email you comments if it won't let me in. I hope you get this message.

  6. Love that house and that stunning poinsettia, I hope you got stuck into that ice-cream once you took that shot! Yum! X

  7. I love driving around and looking at houses..$1 ice creams gotta love that!..xx

  8. Glorious sunny day.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
